I read Peggy Noonan’s latest article over the weekend and heard Rush talking about it this morning.
Noonan has such a way with words and this is no exception. Defining when life begins is not above her paygrade!
From Peggy Noonan:
As to the question when human life begins, the answer to which is above Mr. Obama’s pay grade, oh, let’s go on a little tear. You know why they call it birth control? Because it’s meant to stop a birth from happening nine months later. We know when life begins. Everyone who ever bought a pack of condoms knows when life begins.
To put it another way, with conception something begins. What do you think it is? A car? A 1948 Buick?
If you want to argue whether legal abortion is morally defensible, have at it and go to it, but Mr. Obama’s answers here seemed to me strange and disturbing.
Rush expounded on the point this morning by asking something like “if the Democrats don’t believe life begins at conception, then why use birth control?”
It seems the Democrats want to define some arbitrary point when a baby is alive so as to suit their need for relative moralism. But, as pointed out by Noonan, they are inconsistent on the issue of when life begins.
Dems believe life begins at conception when they want to force condoms and birth control on America’s daughters, but
Dems apparently believe life doesn’t begin until birth when they want to force abortion upon America (without parental consent).
So which is it?
